#FliteTest #MannedDrone #Crazy
Could you add a magnetic generator in the front to increase the flight time?
InfinitySav is a good one.
The real life guys already did this…
people will die
Its basically just a helicopter. I hope i am alive when man discovers how to reverse engineer stuff that Bob Lazar claims he had a tinker with.
Call it the “Bumble Bee”…you know, the little insect that isn’t supposed to be able to fly, but does anyway!!!
I wonder if the video would have been less dramatic if MARY HAD A LITTLE LAMB was playing in the background?
Lol ! That’s only the beginning … welcome to the future 🤩
That’s the future vehicle hopefully I’m still alive on that era hehehe
If it’s manned it is by definition not a drone, you are talking about quadcopter racing as soon as you include a pilot
So in 5 years. Ill be like good thing i never got that new car and saved my money. Going to fly.
Pls Name it “DCL SkyShark F6”
F6 for 6 propeller, Shark for hunter, sky for unlimited horizon.
Once there’s a Pilot IN It,How s It Still A Drone?
Anyone who knows their stems knows what that means
Future Cavalry. Mount guns on it.
17:48 the song is Everithing or nothing
its NOT a drone if there is a pilot in it!!! EPIC FAIL BRO!!!!
I mean… It sounds like a wasp and it’s black and yellow so… The Wasp?
This could be history in the making
How bout building a HORTEN 229 ?…I DARE YOU 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃
fix your editing this sucks.
Please do a video with the A-10 and the war ship battle or a war tank battle
I’ve had this idea for a while of a drone that could be used as a quick personal transport. of the manned drones I’ve seen so far, this one has to be the coolest. I really like what they did with the bodywork. My main concern is the safety considering if the power fails it will just fall, and the props aren’t large enough to autorotate down slowly like a helicopter. I’m thinking maybe some kind of airbag system could make it safer for pilots to soften the landing since it is generally too low for parachutes
Run a little napoleon bloomberg ad, get a thumbs down and immediately on to the next video
I was the USAF first Chief of Technology for the USAF Unmanned Aerial Vehicle program. An aerial vehicle that is unmanned is called a UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle). UAVs almost always require some kind of ground controllers. When you include those, the collection is called a UAS (Unmanned Aerial System). A UAV that is intended to be shot down as an aerial target is referred to as a drone.
So, this is not a drone. Since it is designed to have a man inside, it’s not ‘unmanned’. So, it’s just an aircraft.
Many people think if it has multiple downward facing rotors, that’s a ‘drone’. They’d be wrong.
My understanding here is that this vehicle/system doesn’t require a human on board to operate. The vehicle is operated/controlled by an operator on the ground, regardless of whether there is a person, a mannequin, or a bag of sand contained within the body of the aircraft. Therefore, I guess you could say this is a UAS.
This belongs in a James Bond movie.
If it is maned it is no longer a drone
Big whoop. A manned drone.
Stunt drone pilots make truly atrocious aerial videographers huh… awesome machine however!!!
Name it that plz
I don’t ever see a benefit to manned drones. Helicopters far exceed drone limitations due to battery and liability. And drone raving with people is just massive casualties waiting to happen. A real advancement would be a power source beyond lithium and fuel. Imagine an esc burning while hauling ass. It all ends badly.
drone noun (1)
Definition of drone (Entry 1 of 3)
3 : an unmanned aircraft or ship guided by remote control or onboard computers
Put a person in it… it isn’t a drone, just a small aircraft.
This is sooooo Fing cool
All this for a stupid drone race simulator??
name it “the wasp”
Note – INCREDIBLE TECH – BUT !!!!
Don’t want to rain on the parade … but … can”t see this ever being a “racing drone” – two reasons – look at how terminal crashes are in drone racing now – the drones literally explode – imagine with people inside, so there’s your first reason safety (which needs to be the only reason honestly) which is why there will never be races against other competitors at the same time like F1 which means you’re into clock racing which leads me onto the second point
How would this ever be as intense as the current Red Bull racing and the speeds and moves they currently achieve etc … this drone isn’t quick – looked cumbersome – sure can spin on a six pence … but fans demand excitement and for me it seemed pedestrian in comparison to a prop acro plane …
You might get some interest and novelty factor – up to the point where someone dies …
So yes looked amazing – never gonna be racing though …
It came to me THE FLY RIDE. so awesome. 📡👽🇺🇸 above it all. Imagine a fleet of these fighting a fire. So many good things.
The plane drifter seems like a good name to me lol
I do not understand. Drones have been developed so that you no longer have to sit in an aircraft. military for reconnaissance, unfortunately also to be able to fire missiles. And now you’re building a drone to sit in ??? Very useful
I want my personal man drone
Soooooo big !
hmm, the camera attached to the f1 chassis.above the human in the cockpit.why isnt there and pilot shots.wouldnt it look better?
Hi my name is Bill and I am over the kids at our church group and starting a flying club which we lack money to get the equipment we need to get a lot of these kids into flying, I just wanted to ask you if you have any thing that you don’t use very often and would like to donate to our club, quads drones RC cars , RC planes and definitely FPV goggles , some fpv equipment that you can donate to our church I would really appreciate it you could always contact me on here or by my email address firstname.lastname@example.org, thank you very much and remember every little bit helps to make the kids a little happier. Please pass this on to your friends also, and when we will start getting a budget build up , we could donate back to you, thank you and I hope you really take this seriously, anyone at sends us anything I will send and post them videos of the kids enjoyed flying them, Address,. Bill hash 1317 #7. Cora ln. Johnson City TN. 37615
So Cool! The other small drone… I was like, why is that bird following that machine. LOL!
Hmmm, so its a helicopter
At some point I think they forgot a human was in there.
Call it killer bee
Here you go Faa!!!!
Needs to be piloted from the cockpit _ otherwise I don’t see the point.
Isn’t this considered a “flying car”?
I think it should be called the bumble bee
This is why men have higher mortality rates than women lol
Incredible AWESOMENESS! Thanks for sharing this with us!
Sending positive vibes your way.
Peace love dream’s!🇨🇦
Man-Drone? What lose but BUMBLE BEE.
Alguém do Brasil?
Was that real human inside the drone? I bet not. Are you crazy enough willing to sacrifice your life for that??? Scaryyyy…
Name it, “Bumble Bee”
Call it Drony McDroneface
This totally needs to be in a James Bond Movie now!
Clickbait. This Josh guy is a pr*ck.
It should be called the vulture or gyro
This would be a deadly weapon platform.
Cool but not manned – click bait/false/inaccurate caption
this is the 1st manned drone
Amazed at the people that missed the living human in the craft before the last flight! SMH!!
IT’S REMOTE CONTROLLED AND NOT MANNED. CLICK BAIT
I want this!
As a student pilot and aviation enthusiast, this was awesome!
FYI to these guys: “Manned drones” have been known as “aircraft” for a hundred years or so.
“Manned quadcopter” is probably more appropriate.
so he jus rides in it and someone else flies it form the ground ?? I would not like that as the occupant.
Hey why don’t you guys do that with a plane
Germanic engineering is always impressive!
Hook me up!!!
Wow a full 3 minutes fly
please make more so we all could buy our own racing drone …we all got some where to go.
You should Bumble Bee
PAV’s…Personal Aerial Vehicle’s
I see a hige investment from many governments a comin
you should call it the “MOSQUITOE”.
Wow,People are Amazing
I didn’t see anybody in the Drone maybe I wasn’t paying good enough attention looks like clickbait to me just saying
I want one! OMFG
Absolutely Amazing!!! We’ll done! 👍👏👏👏
Call it The Yellowjacket! 😎👍
Great job guys! 👍
How about the drone’s name : “FrontierHunter”
What kind of drone is taking the video
Can’t wait for manned aerobatics planes
If they are able to get this to work effectively then this is the future flying cars are coming.
The death toll in this will be like early race cars
These guys acted like they cured cancer or something
UFO or Wasp
What if a bird hits to the propellor? is he then crashing down?
Hows it a drone with a man inside? A drone is unmanned that’s the point
This is going to be new war weapons
If you can get a longer flight time out of it all you have to do to flip it into a piloted craft is mount the remote transmitter on the dashboard and climb in and go❗😜❗👍
OH-OH 😬 *RIP Trump’s Border Wall* 😆🤣😂
NICKNAME: *The Jumper* See you on the other side 🌮 “Ándale ándale, arriba arriba!!!”
So many people so busy with snipping at what they call it when you should marvel at what (with some battery development) could be the next step in the home built aircraft slot of general aviation…..
The only thing holding them back as I can see right now is range/flight time❗😜❗👍
Great job guys, for an electric Hell-of-a-copter you’re way past Kitty Hawk❗👍
que loco sería cambiar la Fórmula 1 (F1) por drones (D1) ajajaja ahí sería más entretenido y no consumiría tanto combustible, además de no morir en explosiones o choques automovilísticos sino que caerían en una cúpula salvavidas 🤔
Looks like it’s from that game wipeout
After thet millitary mens like always add on this thing canon and rockets
I like people that take an idea and run with it. But I can’t help but think that these guys are going the wrong way here. The beauty of the drone is that it takes the man out of danger, now here we are putting them right back in. I do hope no one gets hurt too badly. Matt
I have a name for it….. ” Quad-Pod-Racing ” .
See what DJI started?
Drone at daytime..when it flies at night others will say ‘oh shoot! A UFO! Wow! Great job though..i want one!
I reckon it should be called silent noise
Sometimes I get so excited for the future.
I dun get it… they made drones to be unmanned so they could get into dangerous areas without getting actual ppl hurt…. and now they make a drone to be manned by a person who can’t fly it himself as sum1 else on the ground is flying it remotely otherwise it’s not a drone anymore, into a dangerous area but…. what’s the use of that?? Why make a manned drone when drones r supposed to be unmanned for safety reasons?? And who would be crazy enuf to sit in 1 when they r not in control of it?? I know, passenger on an airplane, ur not in control either… but drones r meant to go into dangerous areas, passenger planes r not…. who would willingly let himself be driven/flown into dangerous areas in a device that’s meant to be send in there without a person in it so u don’t get hurt?? The whole idea just baffles me… Why make sumthing soooo redundant??
airmobiles like snow mobiles but over air
1 step closer to Star Wars. #Podracers
Nothing actively flown by a person is a drone, so…
How has the military not done this and strapped some machine guns to it
nah they made a real manned drone 4 years ago in the Philippines.try to search it here in you tube. the great thing here is he is just a dancer
click bait shame ruins the fun again
Slow, washes out every turn, and has a battery life shorter than the time you spent trying to sell the playstation game.
I hate to be cynical but I got sold on that battlemech league that ended up being a washout, I think some fantasy sports are just too dangerous and expensive to ever realistically compete in. Red bull sponsors some plane races that are a good watch though.
The Bumbling Bee
The military will develop this and arm it. Take it all around the world and exhibit it to many interesting people and kill them.
Click baits are not cool
two years earlier:
Thank you guys for your job. This is amazing vehicle 😉👍
By default …doesnt that make it at least some form of plane or copter by being MANNED? It can no longer be a drone
Clickbait with terrible music!!!
Name it “the wasp” or “the hornet”
You guys wanna see a real one with no Clickbait.
Search this one “Smallest Flying Sports car by Kyxz Mendiola”. thumbs this up so everyone can see. Made by by someone who has less than and 1/8th of this guys budget and he is using daily for fun.
This is not a manned flight. If a real pilot had made these aerobatic you would have had fabulous footage of him with the rotating background. Why do you as an ethnic group have to fake everything?
I Want one.
Here in philippines we have maned drone working 100%
Well it’s not a drone if it’s manned
It obviously has to be called the hummingbird.
After flying a drone myself, I must always recommend having propeller guards on or cages because the fun ends rather fast when one hits skin or anything for that matter, especially when they’re that big.
DCL Guys – Can you please put everyone out of the misery we are in and explain WHY there’s a person in a Drone and what the point is? Is he there for the ride, does he fly it, just about every comment is WTF are they doing this for? I am one of them, I totally don’t get it. I like it but I don’t understand why I like it.
I feel like calling it a AF-14 Because it looks like a a f1 car and it in the air…and a drone has 4 propellers but not this one
So an air craft ? Not a drone ?
click bait lmao UNSUBED
While you people are using this as fun, the military will steal your data and use this as destruction.
why “manned”? tumb down
It’s not manned….????
Orbur…Which is a combination of two famous names.
Not click bait… Because it is the
“1st manned acrobatic RACING drone”
It’s not being manned at the moment but it will be because That’s what its built for… They’re clearly testing it for it’s 1st manned flight.
Cool machine no doubt and I”d rather hear that than the wayy too distracting dramatic music
the DCL Bumblebee, I’d call it.
4:19 This Guy on the right is so obsessed with being in the frame .13:07 I mean look at his face that’s me during my maths class😂🤣
A ‘manned drone’ is an obvious oxymoron, surely? No?
any drone of this type suffers from No forgiveness Failure.
Early helicopters looked a lot like that. One problem you will have with more mass is more inertia. More momentum means you won’t be able to flip the way a small drone does. You’ll have to get a pilots license to actually this.
Needs an eject button for the props…
These guys are making history and all I see here in comments are complaints…
*Government wants to know your location*
but like, this is a flying car, are we not gonna talk more about this?
I NEED one of these. Like this is the future and my dream
I want that..!
I WANT IT NOW!!!
At least somebody out there is bringing the flying cars dream to reality, it’s 2020, and today is nothing like how I thought it would be when I was a child lol
Dear Flite test YOU MADE IT ONTO DAILY DOSE OF INTERNET!!
A drone with a throne
Fly boy six thousand for a name
Or fly boy three because it has three arms on each side
Definition drone: a remote-controlled pilotless aircraft or missile
I want to see a military version with mounted gun and jet engines instead of propellers
Stupid and pointless if the guy in the drone isn’t piloting it.👎🏽
This the type of stuff I expected to sse in 2020. Well done!
This can be flying car
Where can I buy one ?
Well, besides the transportation point, i see this craft perfect for a sci-fi movie without spending lots of dollars in CGI
The Human Flyer
If its manned, it isn’t a drone. Just saying.
Guys, I think you kind of misled a lot of your viewers by showing the human pilot sitting in the craft, and then showing the aerobatic flight… A person wasn’t actually sitting in there for that flight, was there?
There better not have been a human in the craft during that second flight. Think about the consequences for the pilot on the ground if something went wrong. He could have killed his friend. If this type of flying is to be attempted, it needs to be done by the person sitting in the craft. He can make his own judgement calls on how risky he wants to get with it, and if he kills himself, he’ll only have himself to blame.
e D í C u L a
Instead of putting a man inside . Could have put a 50 cal . Or RPG then that would be cool
It looks like a huge skechers shoe…
A good name would be pickle brothers
pfft didn’t see the pilot flinch a bit on the last run, and the guy with no glasses on at the end is the “pilot” by the looks of his eyes and left eyebrow
The government regulations are going to be so crazy.
No human on the drone, get a weapon on it.
That is one big trust exercise…
Pretty misleading showing him inside the thing right before the crazy acro. Come on now.
(brings you to the)
(international racing circuit!)
Looks like a big wasp
Call it Dronbullbee
So basically drones have jumped the shark
no man in that…DUMMY
This is cool but I though that there was gonna be someone in the drone and the person inside the drone is piloting the craft. This was a bit of a let down. Here I’m thinking dam, I could use that to get to work in the morning if they ever sold the craft to the public.
Fake. There was no guy inside whilst flying
This is the future
Flight starts at 10:15
TopGun Dragon Drone
If a dude in the aircraft piots it, that by definition is not a drone. It is in fact the opposite of a drone, it is a personal acrobatic aircraft.
It loks like a sports shoe, cal it the Rebox helishu, or Rebox Shulicopter
The Flutter Cutter
The Gnarly Harly
now that i think about it, a drone is an rc heli isn’t it
Or just Duke
The Lead Zepplin
Kayak racing = Kayaking
Bike racing = biking
Now: Drone racing = Droning
Why not let a computer control it? It could be a really good way of getting casualties out of war zones, without tying up good men who could be providing cover. Of course, the casualty would have nobody seeing to him for the duration of the trip, but it would really come down to what type of injury it was
Man Drones acronym would be MD so call them doctor drone.
This concept you could call it, …I don’t know, ……maybe, “HELICOPTER”?
What a combination: adrenaline from looking at the brand new drone technology, adrenaline coming from an exciting drone pilot and all wrapped up in stunning scenery from my country. Greetings from your new subscriber from Croatia!
P.S. There are no fjords over here, but you can find them in Norway. That was just a beautiful river mouth, or a bay.
The title is too innacurate
WHERE CAN I BUY ONE
There were 29 Ufo sightings that afternoon
call it the yellow jacket
Now flying cars exist?
This is not really different from the man drone made before.
This thing will kill him. I have enough RC experience to know you cant trust the stuff… even the best stuff!
You should call them “Bee-Liners”
15:25 for those of you in a hurry
Guys ,what a privilege to be over there with these guys.
I was genuinely excited to see this work out for them .Seat of your pants anxiety felt for you all. Can’t wait to see the next chapter of this man size acrobatic MAV. I thought it would be easier with all the power distribution sorted, But as you said Yawing was the challenge. Now, Who is going to sit in that Cockpit????????
Call them pod racers!
call it Airwasp
“Dronie McDrone face”
First Step Towards Manned Flight…..
saw this on ddoi (daily dose of internet) and came here
Im from germany 🙂
Mpd Wasp / manned peformance drone
This got on daily dose of internet 😎
This is perfect for a bond villain’s henchmen.
Click Bait 🖕🏼🖕🏼
The Mothership of the racing Drones
Airbus is watching this….😎
The guy flying the camera drone needs to calm the F down
Good thing !! U know what , Elon Musk is needed to show up n complete this toy !!
You were in Croatia!? 😃😃😃
Power to weight ratio is way low needs bigger motors
I guess the mannequin identifies as a human…
If it’s manned, and piloted by the man inside, then its not a drone. its an aircraft
Watching it flip makes my stomach wanna flip.
So my idea is you guys merge with TESLA
Hope you see this 😬
Congratulations that was amazing very impressive
wonder if he shat his pants
Crljenka Airport in Croatia! Such a cool place!
Worlds first manned unmanned vehicle
You guys are stupded for saying you can’t fly from inside the drone because its remote controlled. You can take remote with you inside drone and fly it from inside cockpit or from outside .
Don’t know why you just wouldn’t call it a pod racer….
12:09 guy tried to high five the VR dude.
Name: The Jetson 2000
A name? Really people?! It’s got six blades (or legs) and is yellow and black – It’s called “Bumblebee”
The widow maker
What a great video! Really felt like I was there with you and could feel the anticipation and the excitement! Awesome job all round and can’t wait to see more on this project.
I think you don’t realize how noisy it is. These will never be a form of
Transportation to much down draft to much noise just an ignorant machine
Adlerwespe Is the name I’d pick for it (P.S that’s German for “Eagle Wasp”)
Here’s a cool name : Speedy MC.Drone
Now, add safety features, more power and longer flying time. Getting in this one, Is death trap!
Put a person in it. Not a dummy
so the person inside can’t control the drone? If the person inside is piloting it is not a Drone…
to much weight for rotor vectoring, need to make those props rotate 15 degrees for automated correction and flat turning. Or install heavy props
Why not make one for just the casual pilot with motors specifically designed for efficiency and prolonged flight time instead of racing speed and power???
lol !… WOW !… so fackin’ cool !…
That dude counting out the flight time was like Armstrong landing the Apollo 11 Lunar Lander! This a was a truly an amazing video!
When you go in for a high five but the dude in VR world
I’ve got a name For it “Mannequin”
you invented the flying car
If it’s manned, is it still a “drone”?
Why not have the deadweight dude seated in the drone fly himself with the remote?
DCL = Dont come Last
Should be called “DRACERS”
Actually PeterSripol actually made an actual manned drone last year…. Idk if its racing one or no but he made it and it’s good
Cartel members just joined the chat.
What’s the point of having a drone fly a person? Surely it’s not a drone then 🤦🏻♂️🤷🏻♂️😂
Here from Daily Dose Of Internet 👌🏼
This is the real manned drone
(3/6) Channel owner/mod THUMBS_UP disabled this comment. Must b gang member preemtively stalking YT commenters.
Wasn’t it a dummy, not manned ? And if dummy, how heavy was the dummy ?
I will never get into a tri, quad, hex or octo-copter of any shape or form. Every current form of flight we have allows gliding. n’copters don’t glide, because they don’t fly. They require prop thrust or they simply plummet.
I also doubt that any of these contraptions will ever get an air worthy certificate beyond “Experimental” or be allowed to fly near anybody or anything.
Name suggestion live flight drone racing
If it is unmanned it is a drone. If it is piloted it is a quadcopter (or a sexcopter??) But if there is a passenger but it is controlled remotely is it a drone with passenger?
Jus… Muh Bawlz.
I wants Buy One pls hahah
because it is black and white you can call it THE STINGER
Sure that alright, but when will I see someone in it?
Does anyone else get scared of giant drones, I hate to think about this thing chasing me
Click bait title and only 2 minutes of content.
the guy inside shouldve waved or something. i doubt theirs actually a person in it. who gon play with someone’s life like that?
In that colour scheme, it’s got to be called The Wasp 😅
I want one now!
music is not the important thing lol spoils the video? why
We will do drone racinghh
We are living in the future!
call it yellow jacket
Doesn’t look very glide friendly, which means just one motor failure, and death is likely. Just plain stupid!
F-15s & F1 cars have sudden mechanical failures!
But these Asperger fucks did this over trees… when they’re RIGHT NEXT TO WATER !??
$100 million aircraft with 20+ years of experience & R&D have failures! The SMART-EST mfers in the country … or even allied with the US … and they regard it important to have as much safety as possible. Hard decks, protocol, etc. But not these Aspy’s.
*Peter Sripol made one first*
How about yellow jacket or the wasp!
I’am from cratia and i live in dalmatia in Zadar but I didn’t recegnize where is that filmed. And come and wisit us agen. And also it’s my 14 birthday. Sorry for my writing.
That @ 15:58 !
Scary AF , I bet he got his pants changed right after 😆
Call it the “A great idea?”
name it “The Hornet” or just “Hornet”
Way cool but A manned drone? I would not let anyone on the ground remotely fly me while I’m up in the air unable to take control.
I CANNOT WAIT to see somebody get grotesquely and mortally MAIMED as a result of RIDING in one of these dumb things. This concept is f*cking stupid. The pilot either controls the vehicle or not, and if not, what’s the sense of having a pilot who literally does nothing but pose a health and safety hazard? Why? I dont understand. Itd be way more interesting as a mini one man quadcopter which is operated from onboard the vehicle. The term “manned drone” itself is just stupid. STUPID. I can see how this may be useful for transportation because you could just have someone remotely fly you to your destination and drop you off. But I dont get how this makes drone racing more interesting. Also being the rider would be cool for like two minutes and then you’d get fed up and nerve racked with whomever was piloting the deathtrap that you were locked in. Again. STUPID AND DANGEROUS. Putting someone ELSE in a flying deathtrap so that you can stand on the ground and fly them around leaving them without any control of the aircraft just seems reckless and downright ridiculous. Not to mention (again) the sheer idiocracy of the whole idea. A drone is an UNMANNED aerial vehicle. The fact that you’d put a person inside makes it manned so it’s no longer a drone. But then you leave the person without ANY piloting instruments so that it stays a drone? Is that the logic here? F*cking STUPID. It sad to say.. but I hope someone gets killed doing this so it can be banned before this gets too far. Nice work guys but come back when the rider is the pilot and controls the aircraft from onboard, not just a passenger. You know- like a f*cking NORMAL race vehicle. Retards. This is like those little battling robots on steroids 😂 nobody cares that you would rather have fun with an RC toy than drive/pilot an actual vehicle. It just boring to think about. Not interesting whatsoever. And again- dangerous. The passenger is going to know if impact is imminent LONG before you do(on the ground with your RC toy remote). Its not rocket science, it’s common sense- the vehicle should not be remotely controlled unless there are no passengers… its f*cking dangerous but hey, you’ll figure that out. You want anybody to be interested in this, make them into rider-piloted vehicles. nOt Dr0MbZ, WeetAHrDz
That’s insane. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Hard to appreciate it a lot because of the constant stupid little buzz droid unstable footage. More if not all footage taken from a stable ground position would have been better.
Talk whit Rimac in Croatia, for bateries,he know how to make lond durable bateries.
And name have to be special,its new product,exp. Skycopter.
Stoked to see what Mirko is doing!
Aaarghhhh!! They didn’t check their wiring diagram!!!! Glad it’s not just me.
This thing has NO CONTROL. DEATHS WAITING TO HAPPEN.
Ah Ah Ah, Alpha Tauri, not Torro Rosso
What was the purpose of the smoke
it would be quite monumental to die in a machine meant to be un-manned.
Loose the loud lame music FFS its not an epic feature film.
Body parts everywhere when it becomes a sport
Name: yellow jacket
couldn’t even hear it over the stupid music
Can it carry 250 pounds around and still fly!??
Sei ist Heisst: Ausgeflipptflieger auf Deutch.
They should make their game for the Oculus Quest!
Bring it to production
Please invent the Zero Altitude Parachute
The whole idea with a drone is if you crash it, you don’t die or get hurt at all, so lets just throw that most fundamental aspect out and make flying coffins?
konsepto Millenya …
electric manned aerial vehicle …
search it at Facebook
Suggested name “FLIGHT KICK – 1” OR “FK – I”.
CROWD CONTROL !
Not a drone
Call it the hummingbird
Before I watch this…If it’s manned, how is it a drone?
So they want to go from making unmanned quadcopter drones to making manned quadcopter Pilots
Hardly racing, just floating.
change the title, this is clickbait
Special forces would be interested in this ….especially for night time operations.
If you want improved prop efficiency you need to make them ducted. It will also prevent severed fingers
this is amazing if you know enough about these! do your research comment section. its a hexacopter look up the differences in quad, hex, tri, oct. now consider this is hex booms 12 motors……….: ) perfect platform but this is truly on a 1 up level. its actually here thanks to this team!!!!!
and for the other half of the comment section. look up f1 car crash. then look up drone athletics from ted. it wont be near as bad imo…. but hey look for yourself. and you decide!
now that thats cleared up lets give a round of applause for these people!!!!!!!!!!!!!
love your stuff flite test thanks for bringing this stuff to us!
perfect coffin !!!
It’s like dr robotniks ship in the Sonic movie
Absolutely Insane, the best I’d love to be a manned drone pilot
Yeah, I love multicopters. Especially when motors shut off. Fckn flyin brick 😀
No thanks, I’ll stick to planes/helis
Cost is €3,000,000 if anyone is wondering. No joke. THQN is a money grabbing wh***. They rather focus on Spongebob because Nickelodeon is paying them big bucks vs Destroy All Humans! remake.
Ok, can we now get a FlyFormula series please?
5:52 – This is where conventional pilot training would have save some parts. After taxi to a safe location to do a runup and before run-up you do a ‘controls free and CORRECT’ step. I’ve taken this habit over into flying quads, and it’s saved me several times – like when you flash betaflight with the orientation 90 degrees to what it should be. After you arm, leave the throttle at minimum and check roll pitch and yaw to make sure the right motors spin up for each of them. Admittedly, he probably would have done this subconsciously if he was sitting in the aircraft.
And yeah – flying with my CFI and doing unusual attitude recovery with the hood on was one of the funnest parts of my PPL.
Another interesting video ruined by some loser desperate to be part of the process adds crap, reality-TV dramatic music when it flies. Wait for a version does by someone not 12 years old.
Bunch of foam padding all inside the cabin all the way encroaching your body then man it.
Can the manned pod be gymbaled below and rotors above?
We have one of those russian rockets at barksdale museam. Wheres the gas tanks?
So, is this available to deploy for enhanced interrogations?
I have a channel called Push The Limits
Think about those powerful motors
Total bullcrap. At no point during the flight does the occupant’s head move.
They kept mentioning how cool the sound of the vehicle was, then drowned it out the whole time with shitty, Discovery Channel, fake drama music.
if you put a man in it and you say in the video you need a name for the drone , i got one. “The last ride”
Please comment on Philippine flying car. It is actually driven by the owner, builder…
Tombstone Racing, Inc.?
Should’ve used the chassis with the halo, for some measure of safety if it lands upside down.
That crash test dummy with the black helmet on has elephant sized balls
*DRONES STOP BEING DRONES WHEN YOU ATTACH A PERSON TO IT.*
Drone: an unmanned aircraft or ship guided by remote control or onboard computers
I like how they say the drone sounds amazing starting up and flying, and then FliteTest proceeds to put garbage music all over the actual flight so you can’t here it. Way to go…
Is the DCL game available on steam?
It’s do sad that they switch dummy and tell everyone, that there was actually human during that flip…
That is so not right guys :/
Name it the Mandrake which literally means man-dragon
Name it the yellow thing
Name it terry
“ExciteFlyt”, “OctuRacer”, “Cyclo-Drone”, “CrowSpinner”, “BladeRunner”, “FanFurry”, “DragonRush”, “Acceleracer”, “Maveracer”, “OnMarQ”…..
omg I want one.
If it is flown by a pilot on board…..is it not just an aircraft ?
except if I had one I’d fly in it.
the humble hornet??
I’m pretty sure that these will be the first flying cars we will have
A drone is unmanned, doi!
There is and will never be any such thing as a “manned drone”. A drone is a term specifically used for unmanned vehicles. This will be a manned hexacopter which is impressive, but it will NOT be a drone anymore.
All this needs is some car wheels and we now have flying cars
I need one of these that will last all day on one charge! Fly my butt to work! 🤣
starts at 10:00
‘Manned’ ?? FAKE !! That dude wasn’t even moving or waving. He doesn’t even have cockpit cam or the footage wasn’t focused to him at all.
Search “Smallest Flying Sports car by Kyxz Mendiola” for the real thing. He made this years ago.
This is the future
If it has a pilot inside it’s not a drone 🤬
The ‘Slice & Dice’ league !
I saw these made in PHILIPPINES in 2017
Name your team The Killa’Bees
Oh my God!!!!
It’s not a drone if it’s manned. Unmanned aircraft is the literal definition of drone. It’s a manned quad copter. This common mistake makes me irrationally angry
*edit: I guess hectocopter. I misspeak when I’m seething with rage, I guess
What about G FORCES on humans?
Guys this is an oxymoron manned drone you idiots
Call it The Wespe!
A man drone? Don’t you know what the word drone means? A man drone I think would be called a octocopter or some kind of copter
Click bait joke
What are the flight times? The time this can fly with Li-ion batteries will decide the future of this tech
this is the new F1, i know it, you need top invite the president’s of F1 teams to view practive runs, maybe invite F1 officials too, this could be a new sport!
Wooo this is WipeOut become real
Duh!!! They just got it put together….they are not going to put a human inside till they know it’s safe. No one ever said this was a manned flight. What was said is that it is capable!!!
Wow that’s pretty incredible. Feels like we’re watching a part of history as it happens, very cool
It’s actually the first “dummy” racing drone flip lol
Well, its technically not a drone anymore
@Brandon Sparks Are you dumb or somethin? Read the vid title, it says MANNED. Listen at 13:54 too mofy
“”””””””Dracer””””””””Aka “Dracing” and when they actually fly it looks like tracing. Very fitting. Simple.
I guess since I’m not 9 years old I was able to look past the click bait title…sorry Juan
Wouldn’t it be a multirotor craft.
The yellow jacket
A woman would better they drive cars like go karts
The CEO looks like a young Val Kilmer.
they should call it hornet or wasp
I think you should call it “The Harbinger” because there are better things to come.
Cool name i come up with skyliener sky lies near
It looks like a banana, and you lay inside it. You should call it Banana Hammock.
its not manned if there is a dummy in it
a much sexier helicopter
this is what future police helicopters will look like
How about the Corona manned Drone, 500!
I want to enter the “Bat-drone”
15 secs of fame
Well done !
Because of this Automobile share are going down 🤣🤣😂😂
With those color patterns, I would say the wasp or the hornet.
M is copying this for james bond as we watch
Name suggestion #1: suicide machine
Name suggestion #2: NSAV – natural selection assisting vehicle
Because as cool as this machine is,
as long as battery technology is still at the point where it’s at rn, this thing is a fuckin’ death trap.
If it were a plane of some sort, where the main lift component isn’t direclty dependant on the rotors spinning, I wouldn’t have an issue.
But doing aerobatics with a mashine relying on an allready improvment worthy source of energy?
Nah man, there are safer ways to get your daily dose of adrenaline.
AcDc6p p for propeller
Wow 14 S that doesn’t sound like enough ????? That’s only what 58.8 volts ?
there is already a manned drone made here in the Philippines. The difference is that it is made with big corporate backing.
here is what you looking for first “MANNED” but not aerobatic
How about the hornet
Once you put a human pilot in it the it will no longer be a drone. It’s a multi propeller helicopter.
so a weird helicopter
If i was in that drone i would have peed myself aint gone lie
They have to call this the “Tumble Bee”
Now this is pod racing!
nice pitch video for affiliating DCL games…
Our technology is amazing , we just need to past the old battery tech , don’t last … Why cannot we leap forward in that technology , have a battery that last weeks in like a Tesla .
Call it yellowjacket
There are soo many comments here that I’m not going to scroll all the way down. Well done guys! Here’s my 2 cents worth: I never saw a real person flying it , so it’s not ‘manned’ is it?. Also, can someone teach the drone operating camera person how to take some better shots. That was horrible footage, bordering on amateurish. Frame a shot, show the context, zoom out a little bit or record from further away, we’re not all drone racers watching this.
Looks like the f1 inspired racing spacecraft from star citizen
why doesnt the guy in it hold the remote?
Imagine 20 of them racing through a course past you
You should yellow Tiger or bumblebee or yellow sithe
Wondering in Philippines a year ago a guy is doing the same thing a manned drone.
Misleading noones in it
name for the Soul surfer. Dreamfall. DCl Quad surfer.
Id say at least 10 years away from anyone in one of these actually racing each other…. Cool tho.
It isn’t a drone if there is a person in it.
To the oxymoronmobile!
Now this is a drone I can get into. I’ll be the test pilot 100%
Cloud pod racer
Useless now , may be we can find use for it.
At 10:35 I guess you like my invention ?! I invented a manned 6 rotor drone over 5 years ago I also invented a Mars drone carrier able to take six drones to Mars. Maybe you would like to try that one too, just kidding your drone is fantastic and I didn’t have the money to build mine anyway or the Mars drone carrier either so good luck to you with it. It looks incredible.
but if you race this and to of em crash the person myght die
The f1 flyer
Is that pilot The Stig?????
The Bumblebee or Yellow Jacket!!
I woud call it ” Gryphon “
NAME IT “HYP3R HORN3T”
I’m here cuz of daily dose of Internet lol
Click bait title as no person was sat inside flying it, but cool as hell non the less. Really gets me excited for the future!
That sexy Mig-21 though…
The future of POD racers
“In 2020 we will have flying cars”
2020: “close enough”
Keep it up and one day maybe civilization will be able to fly a human across the country , …maybe the oceans……Oh, nevermind.
Big bum drone
For the name maybe the f1 flyer (i know I’m late)
NAME IT “UBER FLIEGER”
I call it…..”Mandroid”
The Wasp is what it should be named.
this Filipino first do the things done not bad for trying
The blunder drone
The Europeans are bad ass. Mad respect for using a Toro Rosso monocoque! How much did they acquire it for guys?
Well, that is a nice start. But I see the need to a lot of optimization work to be done. The design must be functionally adapted to this size. How much power do you use to drive this vehicle?
The double engine rotor concept is very interesting because of its torque balance but as it is designed noe it wastes a lot of power in air vortices. I can imagine, that the arrangement of the double engine fan rotor in a duct with flow straighteners will save a lot of power and give you a better flight stability and control. This design will also reduce the propeller noise by far.
Furthermore you can use coreless axial flux motors for the ducted fans which have more power at less weight.
Why do you use six double engine rotors? You even don’t need four of them for torque balance because each of your double engine rotors are self balanced. I would suggest to use just three double engine rotors for this vehicle and design each double engine rotor in a way that it gives enough thrust just with a single engine. So you are save even if one or two engines malfunctioned or failed.
For safety reasons you should also implement a parachute to save the vehicle and the pilot if you have a serious malfunction or failure at higher altitudes.
Name: hov 24
It’s going to be called Pod Racing no matter what you do….
You mean, the FIRST EVER “Manne-quinned RACING Drone”?…
This is Manny Quinn’s Drone…
i have a name for it. “The BumbleBee”.
THE OCL CANNOPY
Name it the wasp
M d p1 man drone part one
General motors. Better invest now.
I am waiting for the arrival of my first Pro Drone Unit. Seeing this was such an inspiration. I came up with a few names and will really try to come up with a hit for you.
, The Speed Thruster, Dauntless, The Aggressor
, The Player
, The Sky Master, The Motivator
, The Overachiever, The Appeaser
, The Disciplinarian, The Hyper Coaster, The Penetrator
It would be wonderful if one of these names or another that I come up with would be used because I have not had my “15 minutes of fame” yet, and I’m 60 already. Go ahead, make my day, “The Enforcer.” Jeffeo
if its manned it wouldn’t be a “drone” would it|?
Umm why not just let the guy in it control it? lol
Put some arms to scoop up soldier’s strapped into a stretcher on the battlefield for quick evacuations like a medical chopper but smaller to land anywhere & quicker.
Name suggestion mommy’s yellow lightsaber in the drawer
Thinking outside of the box; would a variable pitch propeller system help alleviate the pitch and yaw that you have encountered with your amazing human actuated drone. Feedback is free and always essential in any R&D project.
Possible names for the drone:
This could be the flying car that we’ve been waiting for since the Jetsons…
You tell us about the incredible sound of it and leave that stupid music on!!
Just call it mankind
wasn’t the point of drones .that they didnt need a pilot.if you put a man in a drone it becomes a airplane
Historic ! Well done guys …to infinity and beyond…!
Looks like shoe with blades
I always wonder why most of such unites doesnt have any prop guard to prevent any kind of accidents…🤔🧐
it shuod be called the mandrone
That 1st dude that dies, will be a ” legend ” also extreme dork of the millennia.
call it the BBM1 (bumblebee manned #1)
does it run betaflight 4.1
what does it do in failsafe
does it use crossfire
why does it look like a flying coffin
The video starts at 10:37
Name this drone flyman
The big banana
Now we”re in 2020 !
kind of reminds me of WipeOut video game…
For anyone, who wants to play the “DCL the game”, but doesn’t own a PS4, or XBox One or gaming computer. But you have a computer, but it isn’t powerful enough to run the game. Download Nvidia GeForce Now. You can buy the game through Steam, and use Steam through the GeForce Now service.
GeForce Now, basically allows you to download, and play the game through their servers. You’ll need a decent internet connection for this service tho.
Since it was built in the zeppelin hangar then why not call it the zeppelin drone?
Call it Thunder Road. From the Bruce Springsteen’s song. Worked for the boys in the movie Explorer’s.
given the colors, and sound: “Vespa”
Shut up and fly already…..
Omg that was a great video please please keep them coming 👏👏
“manned drone”?? So the person onboard is just along for the ride? otherwise it’s not a “drone” anymore.
Instantaneously that should be called the hornet, or the hummingbird.
Throwing smoke between wehicle and operator is very stupid idea.
Asombroso!!!!!!!! Felicitaciones!!!!!! Desde Republica Dominicana.
I say call it sky cutter
Contact me. I have the best idea to make alot of $.
Name it stinger
Name it the lightning bug
flight in the 10:10 min
Surprised there was not more automation in this? If there was surely there is commercial viability then?
Who is from Croatia? Like if you are⤵️
Dudes! A filipino perfected this long time ago.
I would definitely install a parachute of some sort as a safety precaution.
The movement capabilities would make it an excellent racer. But has anybody considered the G-forces you are likely to experience in that craft?
Call it “The Wasp”
Call it the Wasp
Awesome. Game Changer.
Name it trash
Jet lagged going from Germany to Croatia? 🤔
They flipped it with that poor guy in it
Mazandro would be a cool name
The futur is now !
I have a name too ‘jetcopter’
peterstepole did this and flue in it
call it a Beeman. it looks and sounds like a bee and it’s manned! Great Job!! Where can I get one? =)
A good name is “Dummenphucken”
You can’t have one prop under another like that, because it will affect the wind turbulence of each other, it’s like one fighting against the other. I’ve watched a video about this same issue, and when they removed the motor and props from underneath, then the problem was resolved.
Why would you use a F1 monocoque as a chassis? Its not exactly aviation weight. Those chassis are designed to withstand high impacts and are super strong. I am confused why they think this is the right strength to weight solution for flight? Some parts of that monocoque structure are super thick and even though it is carbon fibre, its crazy heavy in those areas compared to an aluminium thin skin and skeletal structure. Nit criticizing, just curious why they would choose that as their base to work around. You then need to create extra lift to get the total mass off the ground.
Formula D or drone
Aerowvenger is the perfect name for it 🙂
I belive a nice name of this drone would be the yellow jacket
How does this serve as anything other than a short range application when battery storage density is still so low and making only small incremental advances?
If its manned is it actually a drone?
there is already manned drone here in the Philippines..1 year ago
18:21 he got left hanging
ON BOARD CAMERA
the design itself is cool but engineering wise theres a flaw. the rotors should be higher then the cockpit
I would love to strap my dog in that thing and land it in a busy parking lot just to freak ppl out. Was cool tho.
how is it a drone if it is manned?
Now add some stealth technology and a few weapons systems….now we are talking. Forget civilian consumers and get a military contract ASAP!
Call it the Grasshopper.
No it’s not. He’s not the 1st one. The 1st one is from Philippines
That project is copied
It’s only 1 month lol
If its manned then its not a drone.
My take on this….
*Get the help of Helicopter Engineers instead of RE-CREATING the wheel!!*
Soo happy to see this well done GUYS welldone
Call it an octo copter areal flight racing…. this this is not a drone…
Give credit to this filipino inventor
It’s obviously a better Podracer.
name should be: The Hawk
this will be the next generation of Indi 500, and Formula 1.
behold; the flying bobsled
Nice job guys ! A first aerobatic drone !
I say put a 50 caliber machine gun on it..
Name: M-ARD Manned- Aerial Racing Drone
The first manned drone is made by a Filipino. Not this
“He who can, does; he who cannot, critique.”
The name should be DUNDUNDUUN The shrdder
Its not a drone if its manned….its a quad copter
or just use the off the shelf drone flight stabilizer algorithms because I never see any DJI struggle on takeoff like this thing 🤦🏿♂️
Af1 aka the air formula 1
How is this “manned”? One more thing don’t put music in the video. Pretty hard to hear the motors. Drop the music next time.
i thought this would be about Wipeout 2048… still crazy
I did not know that the drone gave such happiness, I wish I had the happiness to succeed as I watched this happiness.
I think a good name would be “formula air RD1
I mean you have to checkout the Philippines’
It’s much more better than this
good inventions boys..future things.
It’s not a drone if theres someone in it
Agora não precisamos mais seremos explorados pelas companhias aéreas niiiiiiice man
Mega-drone this is the right name flit test i looooove this team 😍
I hope this guy increased his life insurance policy prior to handing his life over 😇
Looks like promotion of the company and the game itself, best way to do it over youtubers, still didn’t saw a person inside but what the heck it looks amazing the vision and all around.
Its not really manned. It’s just a guy who is strapped into it. Just put a joystick and throttle in there.
Manned drone??? Just get a plane
Que pasada!!! Enhorabuena por el proyecto
It has to be called the DCL:Hornet! it suits it to the ground!
Is there a special seat belt for his MASSIVE BALLS???
the striker games
Drone 1 Racing
Absolutely AMAZING people!…think of the potential!
Stick adults in them hand give the controls to an amped up gamers on line. I’d pay to watch that …
Stick crazy people in them and give the controls to amped up gamers on line. I’d pay to watch that …
We have our first manned flying drone in the Philippines, with actual human flying it.
Oh man that L-410 at the Croatian airstrip 🤍🤍🤍🤍 such a beautiful and underpowered airplane
Video of lies. the crewman was never shown to move. In that flying vehicle it was never manned, what it was at all times was a foam doll.
So why would you put a person in there if he/she is not gonna be controlling it?
They should name it the yellow jacket
It’s the new gen formula 1. Let’s name it flight formula or formula f maybe?
calliit a wasp
MonoDrone, MonoPod, You’reDrone,
So it’s a flying car
Now, if they had only made it a tilt-rotor… 100+ MPH
wtf its 2020 why isnt this on gta 5?
I’ll bet there’s a military application already.
you know, I saw a video on tube of some dude made a copy of the Star Wars ship. He had to add a fan in the bak to push and keep it from tipping when flying fast forward.
I’m in brother
I got a name: skymoth
You can call it WASP… or Yellow Jacket… good job!! Regards from Buenos Aires, Argentina
What is your guy’s opinion on DRL?
Maybe good if solar power energy can fly that thing or nuclear power
15:25 to see the drone
Clock the man drown
looks like a flying shoe
The yellow jacket
the “farm drone”
farm = first acrobatic racing manned
how about Bee Liner
I dreamt of a manned racing drone as soon as i saw a custom built racing drone years ago 😂 all it needed was the be built bigger,stronger & more powerfull and tested to carry 100kg+
Correct me if im wrong but a manned drone is called a plane
People need to realized a manned drone needs a man inside it but also a man remotely controlling it or its just a plane
What’s better than a UAV?
A manned UAV
Time to weaponize it.
So amazing !
A future DRC : Drone’s Racers Competition. The name of this thing : Speedrorace.
the guy controlling the little drone did a terrible job of filming this. do he even care about filming the big “drone”?
keep still… please….
PETER SRIPOL – “Come on guys, this is so 2018”
Very cool guys !! I would call it because it’s black and yellow I would call “it the bee 🐝 “ or “the wasp “ or even “the yellow jacket” .
We just need more battery capacity .
Is it still a drone if it has a man inside? Isn’t the concept of drones to be unmanned? This is a 6 propeller helicopter.
Cool, but not manned. Did you put the weight of a man in it at least? I cannot see that configuration being able to fly a 160lb man.
How about VIPER
“Manned Drone”…. invented by Igor Sikorsky in the 1940s.
I created a multi-engine, quad-rotor, direct-Drive electric Rotorcraft…. but it’s a “manned drone” because what I know about aviation I learned on the internet.
Good day sir, I’m from the Philippines please check this drone made from my own country. “KONSEPTO MELLENYA” is the name of flying car made here in our country.
Missed the opportunity to coin “Pod Racing”
Now we know the next James Bond getaway vehicle.
Call it “Droney ManDrone Face”
This guy has been flying (although not flip) his manned quadcopter since 2018 already.
It should be named by definition “Anomaly”(slight twist) “Amanalee”
Bumblebee or chicharra or hummingboard
Background music is extraordinary… I’m ready for battle…😱😱😱😱😱😱
Bro please tell the name of this background music 15:22 – 17:35 it’s awesome.🙏
what’s the point if the dude isn’t driving…?
Looking forward to going to work in one of these!
Tony Stark has just entered the chat
The… 🙌 hornet
I don’t believe that it was a real man inside this thing during the flight.
Where does they where in croatia? Which town?
I wonder what kind of g-force someone can be exposed to in there
Flying in one of these with AI assisted collision avoidance is going to be insane.
Give it to Q and 007 will have rocket launchers, machine guns and a smoke screen. 🙂 I agree it should be in the next James Bond chase scene or in a Mission Impossible chase scene. Great work guys. Can’t wait to fly one myself, own one and go anywhere anytime I want. Awesome.
Action starts @ 10:15. You’re welcome!
u guys mean mannequin man?
10:12 for the actual flight test
What’s the drone that’s recording
If that’s a race car chassis 🤔 is it considered a flying car?
Would have been nice to hear the pure sound without music over it.
What’s the point of putting a man in the drone if can’t operate it?
Flash maqueen ,fatou
7:48 whats that for a Ramjet? Does anybody know? Thx!!
Jo check out the yt-Channel:,, The real life guys“. It’s another german channel and they have build a manned drone out of an old bathub and actually flew it with a person in it. Video must be called: „Unsere fliegende Badewanne“ or ,, unsere badewannen Drohne“ or something like that…
This drone actually has a person in it:
Weren’t drones created to be unmanned?
This is like monkeys on racing dogs, the only point to it is to endanger a person.
i would name it the electric phoenix
Call it the MANtis
10:15 she spools up for take off 👍
but its not manne, my dude…
the colorway should be called yellowjacket, and it should be called a “Hornet”
I am worried about a world that is full of the noise of drones, just when we are going electric in our cars, and everything is about to get a lot quieter, we are going to throw up thousands and thousands of wasps into the air, Just because we can do something, doesn’t mean we should.
If anyone wants to know. I think its a MIG-21 and its a turbojet.
Yeah the title is kinda clickbait but actually not because it only says “first manned aerobatic drone” – as in this is the first aerobatic drone which is designed to be manned one day. There was definitely no human sitting in it while flying but nowhere does it specifically say that, so yeah. You gotta trick the viewers at some point so they will pump up the viewing numbers quicker shortly after uploading so the YT algorithm thinks it’s a very good video which ultimately pumps up ad revenue for YT. I don’t blame them really, was still a very good video.
The MR drone 2020
It’s not a drone if it’s maned
given the color the yellow jacket.
If it has a pilot, is it a drone?
click bait, Thumbs down
Drone means it’s unmanned. Technically the name is an oxymoron
It’s not manned, you are lying. A helmet positioned inside does not make it “manned” Please revise title or remove video for being “false” The Pilot needs to be INSIDE AND FLYING the machine. just to get clicks, this is rediculous.
The person sitting in that thing either has balls of steel or fuckin nuts.
If they don’t call this thing the Dragonfly I will hurt someone
You’ve talked a lot about the power and feel of the drone’s sound, but the editor of this clip did nothing to let it through the audio mix, it was always thin and masked by the music. Maybe consider a good sound capture setup and give some emphasis to this. Awesome content otherwise.
I mean it looks and sounds like a wasp
I have a name : the bumble bee🐝
Name it the wasp or the speed stinger
MaDrone is my suggestion.
way too much drama !
“It sounds so awesome … so here’s some 100 dB music over the entire thing”
There was a manned ‘drone’ flying in the UK in the early 1950s at the Rolls Royce Hucknall aerodrome near Nottingham. We always knew when the ‘Flying Bedstead’ was being tested because we could hear it in school a few miles away. Of course it didn’t use electric motors or sophisticated electronics just a brave man and gas turbines as lift engines. Eventually the idea of using dedicated lift engines for VTOL aircraft was abandoned in favour of vectored thrust and the Harrier fighter went into production.
This is quite an achievement because electric propulsion is more adaptable/flexible than liquid fuelled engines and more amenable to control. As ever, though, energy storage is the big limit. There’s an awful lot of energy stored in a few litres of petrol/diesel/parafin.
By definition, not a drone.
i have a name “scarecrow”
NOW THIS IS PODRACING
Very loud your toy !!!
How about “Mandro”?
The future of flying vehicles looks promising.
The hummingbird !
how can it be a racing drone when it never raced?
Ph already have a manned drone
Now that’s a drone!
If someone is inside it flying it IT IS NOT A DRONE!
So whats the difference between this and the Medi Drone developed in Israel a few years ago? No man in either…..
I have been obsessed with flying ever since I was a baby and I said baby because my earliest memory is from my crib looking up at a model airplane hanging from the ceiling and I remember Knowing what it was, to this day it still kind of creeps me out but the drive to fly has always been with me. The past two years has been a roller coaster for me because I was hiding something from my family and friends and was determined to take it to the grave but it was destroying me and so many bad things happened over and over. When I was about 12 I got tested because my teachers thought something was wrong with me when I was tested he said just relax and answer the questions and I told him I didn’t know how to read and said nobody ever tought me, he was shocked but he read me the questions and I answered them my 1st IQ test was 278 he freaked out so much it made me nervous and he tested me 2 more times my score dropped a little because he made nervous but both were still above 250. The teacher came in, the same teacher that called me stupid on several occasions and said so what’s wrong with him is he slow. He looked at her for like 5 seconds before he spoke and said put it this way he’s smarter than you are 🤯 she glared at me with that crooked eye and left the room. He told me that I didn’t belong there and knows of a special school for gifted children with high IQs and he would come back and get me but when he did it was really nice out and we were outside for recess from the swings I saw his car pull in, I’d remembered it from him leaving after he tested me so I ran up to the open window and sat down against the wall, he asked her where I was she told him I moved away suddenly and she didn’t know where. Looking back I wish I pounded on that window until I was blue in the face but I didn’t and he left all because her and another teacher called me stupid and let the other kids pick on me, nobody listens to a kid and nobody listens to a nobody so I learned to hide it, that summer I tought myself how to read but I’ll stop rambling I’m sure nobody gives a hoot. But other than the fact that my life became one drama packed horror story I fought to remain a good person so now I’m an inventor but I mostly watch my ideas come out before I get a chance to patient them and poorly designed, my mind works very different than everyone else’s mind but I’m sure that they’re are people out there like me at least I hope there is because I’ve always had this lonely feeling like I don’t belong on this planet its hard for me to put into words but there’s finally a name for what I have ( Hyper intelligence disorder). I have been working on a design for a, well I’ll just call it a drone/flying suit. And I’ve thought of some pretty crazy stuff that maybe some of you haven’t , Back in the 90s people used to think I was crazy saying there would be self check out grocery stores auto dimming headlights a computer you can wear on your wrist and so many other things But I keep a notebook and write everything down, But is seems like now the more I write in it the more I end up crossing stuff off because these ideas keep coming out I need to find a place or a company where I fit, my fiance wants me to start my own company because I’ve always been so good at predicting where the future is heading. I apologize for the long comment you guys are doing a good job and headed in the right direction just a few changes and you go from something revolutionary to something that will change the world forever. Ty. JW
Stupid people all around.
It sounds so awesome..amazing video
Looks like the Filipinos beat you all to it..and with ZERO SPONSORS no less SMH!
Only one name seems fitting: “Wasp”
Can’t be a DRONE if it’s manned. You need to call it a MOAN! 🙂
name idea: *screaming sounds*
I think that Hummingbird o Colibrí (name in spanish) is a name that fits well and is cool too, because is tinny and you can’t see the wings or in this case de flying rotor palet.
honestly the footage from their little drones makes me nauseous I thought the whole point of aerial cinematography was that it was super smooth.
i have a name for it
Wonder how long it took for them to (edit)the video is soooooo fake there are already major problems with this that it’s obvious
@Weston Christensen I wish it was funny, but I’m glad you can get a good Laugh at my expense. But I’m curious what about anything I said is lol worthy?
Lipo: 5000s 100000 mah
I’m not even into drones but this is amazing. Keep it up never stop advancing. People like this will change the world.
I’m sorry if my comment sounded ignorant I just thought it was funny how your teachers said you were “stupid or slow” but you turned out to be such a smart person just wanting to achieve the goal of flying.
@Weston Christensen I do have a lot of regrets in life hiding my intelligence for so long being the biggest and if people knew the whole story they would know why I chose to hide it. But having such a high IQ despite what people think it’s not all it’s cracked up to be , I see things and view the world so much different then most people and I’m plagued with severe depression, chronic migraines and I over think everything I have panic attacks so bad sometimes that I pass out or end up in the hospital. I have so so many ideas Like I may have figured out how to possibly reverse global warming but like I said before nobody listens to a nobody but with hard work and a little luck hopefully someday my life will mean something and I will be a somebody. Eventhough I’m very good at reading people and seeing what kind of person they are I try not to be quick to judge them because I don’t know their past or what they’ve been through, for me to judge them would be wrong like so many others have done to me but I want to thank you for clarifying.
SAVULARITY I have suffered from chronic migraines to the point where I would constantly have to see neurologists. They prescribed me Amitriptyline and Naproxen after two years of constantly taking Amitriptyline. one day I stopped and now days I rarely get bad migraines. I’m glad to see we have something in common. All I can say is keep being you and inspiring others to be the best they can.👍
Watching this from 🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺 during a mandated “🍺🍺🍺” self-isolation. Thanks for the great video and welcome outdoor distraction.
The Serpent’s Veil
I hope people dont believe that the dude was in the drone whilst it was flying…
I’d like that ‘manned drone’ to be called the Venom Hexcopter
Technology is growing too fast.
Great, now we’re gonna have flying cop cars…
I can just see the EAA comments … how long till the home built crowd sees this!!!
The name could be “The Interceptor”
Who is this first man? Or is this clickbait?
It’s like batman brought to life. Amazing.
I wonder, just as an after thought…. if you can put a parachute in it as part of a fail safe system?
Like shoot it out the back Jame Bond style.
Here’s a name…. Sky Bond!
Bonding man to the sky… hey it just came to me a couple of seconds ago on the fly… mmm Buzz Buzz.
Man Meets Sky
and likes it… and they bond.
Safety with technology, reminds me of an idea of an ejection seat for a motorcycle. With a couple of small parachutes on each shoulder to open fast and lower to the ground at a reasonable speed. This could avoid a head on collision with a truck and go over it by some 60ft and then land safely. Then the concept, of avoiding a head on in a tunnel came up… and the need for the vehicle to be able to aim the rider like a projectile at any possible gap on the correct angle… just to say, you never thought you would hear of a motorcycle shooting a person as bullet to an air cap between the ceiling of a tunnel and the top of truck? Now that is really outside of the box, yet within a box, the tunnel. Is you head hurting? No? Good! 😀
I want one of those
Veri gudi mau frend
Tanquiu Veri Mach
Straight out of Wipeout.
nobody is flying it so i don’t see a point stupid video
I think a good name would be, The Da Vinci.
Named after Leonardo Da Vinci he studied flight and had a ton of theories on flight.
Maybe they should call it the Flying Hornet or something like that because of the colors
It’s click-bait. There’s no one onboard the thing. Plus, someone else did this with a much smaller team over a year ago _WITH_ someone onboard. The “world’s first” claim is always bullschitt marketing.
Call it the Icarus.
lo veo muy bien, solo faltaria que le pongan un paracaidas balistico por seguridad y que no se pierda el aparato, me gusta mucho
I think your name should be the drone boses
we already have it in the ph. 😁
Did you dislike this technological advancement or just b/c your afraid of flying???
It would be better to shoot the video of aerial shot with more steady shot rather than those racing drone it makes it look not so profesional… just saying
Have you seen this manned drone from the Philippines?
How heavy was the dummy? Vital information I missed.
I call clickbait on the description there WAS NO PERSON in it while it was flown. There is no proof of it in the video other than the dummy so it was still pretty much UNMANNED but i guess that won’t attract youtube views… for that reason your title gets a dislike from me even though i loved the video it self the title is a LIE and even though its me hitting the dislike button it is still a view and means you still get money as a like and dislike to youtube means the same thing.
The real hero is the chase quadcopter!
The yellow jacket
The sky saber
Elvis M – thanks for clearing that up I thought you mention Frank Da Vinci, my barber…………
Icarus. Because the first time it flies the pilot dies….
surely an f1 canopy would be designed to produce downforce?
not an ideal thing if your goal is flight
either way i bet it was full of a lot of poo at the end.
Nobody was in that drone. Yall get an “F” as in fake man. 💩💩💩
6 propellers cant do maneuvers with that much weight. They tryin to get people’s money
The pilot will be a Droman!
…and the unit he’s flying will be a droman killer!
pinoy did that with 1 pilot inside last 2 year () this is the link
and now his invention is more accurate and some company work with him to develop her concept
and the drone name is ( Koncepto Millenya )
and he work it by himself
this is the channel you can check it out
pls check his channel and see her drone name EMAV and KONCEPTO MILLENYA
and nasa Astronaut Scott Parazynski test her EMAV
I know why your angry but it’s not clickbait. The description says that it CAN be manned but it is obviously still a work in progress. Very good progress no doubt but progress.
Ništa bez Hrvatske hehe #cro
Big thumbs up for all of you in video! This beast is awesome *.*
Probably check future
Oh God …. death is rubbing his hands together …. who else has pod racing popping into their head?
it’s really cool but I wish that they’d stop calling it a ‘drone’. Drones are, by definition, not manned.
Design flaw is these drones are too many opposing forces (conflicting) and will want to stall out or lose its direction, it would seem. Dont own one though not 100% sure. That’s why the hellacopter works best. One central main sources of power to propel and the tail blade helps stear. Amazing though. Maybe you guys figure out a way around that stupid rule hopefully and it all work out. Keep up the great work!
The first manned drone is from the Philippines……
imagine that thing cutting your lawn 😂😂
my god the camera work!!! sort it out..havent you seen any DJI promo’s — nice drone though
Great place to test out future flying apparatus, called the Zeppelin Hanger.
yeah but it doesn’t have auto return home- fail
Formula 2? Or pod racing….
this is the almost the same as this one driven by a real man not mannequin
So in the future, taxi drivers will stay home and play the game, while in reality, they are picking up real passengers.
What a BEAUTY what a beast!!!!!
Dummy is obviously really light . Still amazing aircraft !!!!!!
For something this size, why not use a small gasoline generator instead of batteries? You are obviously going to suffer a bit on weight, but flight time would be drastically enhanced.
The first manned drone was the bathtub of the real-life guys
Drone means unmanned
FAKE..!! A live human would NEVER accept a blacked out helmet visor..
StarWars speeder guys!
How about the Lawn Dart?
It’s being manned by a remote control so yes it is a drone with a man inside.
Nice project but you had to ruin it by saying there is a real man inside it and you actually used a dummy.
You can skip to 12:00.
name for new sport, HDR (Human Drone Racing)
In Germany we say an erster Stelle würde ich mich bei Mehmet bedanken
It’s a Filipino design you just copied it
Your just copied a Filipino drone inventor
I personally can’t wait to the day, when I jump in my drone and fly to work.
German engineering is the way to go.
Well done guys………….
Its not even real
Shite music….like a cheap ‘action’ movie
eiii, mirko is a crack!!
Mezuzah (Meh-zoo-zah) – that should be the name of this piece of awesomeness!
Except for the part where there isn’t a person inside it and by definition is not manned
whew..you would think they would tether it or do suspended flights first….
That drone is too small to be successful.. Needs to be 3-4 times bigger and like 10-20 times more powerful.
Manned and drone in the same sentence? Hm..
i love how everyone is saying it’s clickbait when in the beginning if something went wrong and someone was in that drone it would become a really big problem so yeah actually listen to words instead of watching for content, and with the size of the drone the weight might be less and the weight of a whole person will drag it down creating that problem they said in the beginning
That’s freakin’ awesome! Can’t wait to see the first MDRC Manned Drone Racing Championship!!! 😍😍😍 Name it that way, because that’s what it is!
How about QuadPod
i had a collegue helicopter pilot asking me a question about this, whats happen if u have one engine failure in this? will destabilize and crash or is possible to land with an engine failure and if soo how many engines would need to fail until is critical and it cannot perform a safe landing anymore?
I have a name for it!
What the song at 12:24 I gotta know. Sound familiar
I had a dream bout this yal snatched it out my head
Put Bardwell in it!
I m from Germany
The beginning of real life wipeout pure!
Dam imagine pullin up in one of these mfs shits crazy
Name: Aerial F1
Unclassified world: ‘First unmanned acrobatic drone.’
Classified world: ‘NOT the worlds first unmanned acrobatic drone’
Wait. If it’s manned, is it a drone?
spectacular ,impressive,thank’s lot for this lovely video.
Isn’t a drone supposed to be pilot-less by definition?
Not only fly`s but slices and dices too!
hurry up….i want one…but bigger faster and better
Graphics on the dcl game are kinda whack.
First Manned Aerobatic RACING Drone? No – First unmanned Man Size Aerobatic RACING Drone? Yes. Change the title as it false .. cheers
The last song is willyecho everything or nothing
Maintain the name
The “DCL BumbleBee” because it’s yellow and black and it shouldn’t be able to fly!😂
Autonomous vehicles maybe, but with the number of inattentive drivers on the road, adding the need to observe above and below is asking way to much. My family operates a trucking company, I’ve spent years on the road observing all kinds of idiocy. All of the “fantastic drivers” I know have had a history of accidents that were easily avoidable with due diligence.
I love the fantasy of the flying car, but the reality of stupid people is sobering. An autonomous vehicle may be effective, but it really takes away any opportunity to experience what I think we’re all looking for, the ultimate freedom of flight!
Too many comments to go through, my vote for a name is the W.A.S.P.
Somebody more creative than myself can turn it into an acronym (Winged Autonomous Sport Pod or something to that effect)
Edit: I say “autonomous” assuming that the piloting could be handled through software, but it doesn’t seem accurate. Something “Air Sport Pod”? I’m open to suggestions.

Edit 2: A= Aerobatic?
Names: AeroDrone, MARD(Manned Aerobatic racing drone) Prototype 1,2,3,4 etc
Audio in this video is atrocious. 👎🏿👎🏿👎🏿👎🏿👎🏿👎🏿
You can’t tell me they didn’t just sit in the drone and go up alittle….not even a little to see if it could handle the weight????!??!? @FliteTest
YEAH NO ONE WAS IN THERE YOU WOULD BE DEAD FAKE ACTORS SHOULD BE BE TAKING TO COURT , PS4XBOX ALL THEM FAKE NEWS
If you want to buy one for yourself you just have to steal someone else’s brown wallet. The haste from the devil …
That obnoxious suspense music really helps…
LOL JUST PUT A HELMET ON THE COCKPIT AND THERE WE GO.. BUT PHILIPPINES ALREADY HAVE A WORKING MANNED DRONE..
I love to see when people’s dreams come to life. Racing Drone capable of carrying a man should of been the title.
so it’s no longer a “drone” xd
awesome guys .. great I’m happy for you
So no one wanted to climb into the drone? Why do I get the feeling the Wright brothers had more faith in their machine than you guys do in yours? hehe
Not very fast or maneuverable for a racing drone
it’s not a drone anymore. the definition of a drone in a dictionary is : a remote-controlled pilotless aircraft or missile
Name : Wasp
Its not a drone of you can ride inside of it even if the person inside of it is not controlling it
”the racing bee”
Very cool but I must of blinked I thought it was meant to be a maned flight but I didn’t see anyone get in or out of the cockpit
That’s not a quad! It’s a hex!
droney mc drone face
um, “mannned drone” != drone. “manned drone” == aircraft
Everytime i was like”🙏oh god please… “
Name it “The DCL Stinger”… Gives reference to the bumblebee colors scheme and of course their sting.
15:20 – Short version
“The Dizzinator” I got disney just watching…lol.
Is it even a “drone” anymore when it is manned?
It’s not really manned though… You need jet power, why waste your time with propellers?
I feel like you meant to write UNmanned drone…………………. again.
Police cars of the future.
The only problema for this os energy.
That wasn’t manned. Liars.
Click bait 😭
Where can I buy this beautiful machine
If it carries a man, it’s no longer a drone. Duh.
the camera of the drone cannot be still and stable. always moving around in circles randomly fast
